Things we wouldn't say, even if they were true

Signs of the apocalypse. From Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush says Bill Clinton has become so close to his father that the Democratic former president is like a member of the family.

Former President George Bush has worked with Clinton to raise money for victims of the Asian tsunami and the hurricane disaster along the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Asked about his father and Clinton, Bush quipped, "Yes, he and my new brother."

"That's a good relationship. It's a fun relationship to watch," Bush said in an interview with CBS News broadcast on Sunday.

While attending Pope John Paul's funeral, Bush said, "It was fun to see the interplay between dad and Clinton. One of these days, I'll be a member of the ex-president's club. ... I'll be looking for something to do."

Somehow we doubt that Dubya and Slick Willy will be bar-hopping together, but if it does happen it just confirms our worst suspicions about Washington, D.C. He who goes to Dee Cee becomes Dee Cee.
